Today I would like you to have a go at this writing task. Think about expanded noun phrases to describe the character. Can you use a relative clause? What about a semi-colon?















Today we will continue with some work on coordinates and shapes. We will continue to follow the sequence of lessons from the Oak Academy. https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/year-6/maths#subjects

Transition message from Hartford


Dear Parents/Carers,

During this difficult and uncertain time we would like to help our Year 6 students and their families as much as possible. Many students will now be starting to think about their move to secondary school and how they can best prepare in the coming months.

As such, we are recommending a free course called 'Secondary Ready'  by Numerise which is designed to prepare Year 6 learners for joining school in Year 7. The content and course will help to keep children mathematically fresh over this period and is free-of-charge until September 2020.

To sign up click on the link below and register first as an adult (check your junk mail if you don't receive the verify email link). Once registered you can add learners in the 'manage accounts' section.

Message from Mrs Powell

Today I am going to introduce you to a very special person called Theresa. She lived more than 140 years ago.  She was born on 2 January 1873 and died on 30 September 1897, at the young age of 24. Her mother died when Theresa was just four years old, leaving her father with five children to look after. One of her sisters, called Mary, took over running the household, while her eldest sister, Pauline, took charge of telling the younger children about God.  When she was 14, Theresa decided that she wanted to dedicate her life to God, so she became a nun (someone who goes to live with others who give their lives to God). Theresa was made a saint in 1925. A 'saint' is a person who is a great example to us because he or she lived a special life and/or had special gifts.  Although Theresa didn’t have a very long life, she used every minute she had to care for other people. Her best-known saying is, ‘What matters in life is not great deeds, but great love.’ Theresa became known as someone who would show love to others by doing little things. Sometimes she gave flowers, sometimes she prayed, sometimes she showed love and attention to people who struggled with problems. Theresa knew that she wasn’t physically strong enough to carry out great deeds, but she made a big difference to people’s lives by the little things she did for them. Very often, though, it's the little things that have the greatest effect on people’s lives, the little things which show them someone cares.

Time for reflection

Close your eyes and think about a little thing someone has done for you that made you feel special or happy. It may have been a kind word, asking you to play with them or even giving you a special present.

Decide to do something today that will make someone else feel special.

Dear God
Thank you for people who do things for me that make me feel happy and loved.
Please help me to do something today to show someone that I care about them.


We hope you all have a lovely day, best wishes from Mrs Downing, Mrs Whittingham & Mr Beswick

We will have another lesson from BBC Bitesize today. This one is on using figurative language; hyperbole, similes and metaphors and is great preparation for your English lessons that you will have in High School.
